Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, halved horizontally and thinly sliced
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 large red bell pepper, ribs and seeds removed, thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch, mixed with 1 tablespoon water
  • 12 to 16 Boston lettuce leaves (about 2 heads)

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Season chicken with salt and pepper. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over high heat. Add half the chicken; cook, stirring constantly, until opaque throughout, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with remaining chicken.

  2. Step 2

    Add remaining tablespoon oil to pan, along with the onion and bell pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, until onion is tender and golden, about 4 minutes (reduce heat if browning too quickly).

  3. Step 3

    Reduce heat to medium; add garlic, ginger, and red-pepper flakes; cook, stirring, until fragrant, 30 to 60 seconds.

  4. Step 4

    Stir in soy sauce, vinegar, and cornstarch mixture; remove from heat. Add chicken and any accumulated juices; toss to coat. Serve in lettuce cups.

    Where`s the save prompt for this recipe? In fact , I see very few recipes I can save to my folder. Do you have a limit?

  • 29 Aug, 2011

    This recipe was very east and very flavorful. The only disappointment was that there was no nutritional information included. That would be very helpful. Thanks!

  • 15 Aug, 2011

    i've tried several stir-fry dishes and ended up with flavorless meals. but this is absolutely amazing! full of flavor and very healthy. i'll make this again and again.

  • 30 Oct, 2010

    where is the nutrition information?

  • 28 Jun, 2010

    absolutley amazing!

  • 6 May, 2010

    Very easy. I used the wrong type of lettuce...romaine so it was very messy. But I really enjoyed it. Husband wants it with rice next time.

  • 6 Apr, 2010

    LOVE THIS!!!! We have made it 3 times now... And my 2 year old eats it too!... today I ate the leftovers on brown rice was also great. Might be yummy with cabbage or bean sprouts tossed in at the end.

  • 16 Feb, 2010

    Very easy

  • 4 May, 2009

    I made this and it was wonderful. My family loved it and it was very easy. I added some black beans at the end of the cooking time.

  • 21 Apr, 2009

    Hi, I'm new to cooking. Haven't cooked for the past 40years. I've a question. Why do we need to split the frying of the chicken meat into two times?

  • 27 Jan, 2009

    I really like this recipe. I think you need spice it up the way you want but is a great simple stir fry and especially delicious with the lettuce.

  • 20 Jan, 2009

    i made this recipe tonight, and personally did not like it much.

  • 20 Jan, 2009

    Good recipe...although it tasted more like frajitas than (chinese) chicken stir fry, Added some teriyaki sauce at the end to kick it up. Would cut the chicken in to smaller pieces next time but will definitely fix this again. It was a hit.

  • 14 Jan, 2009

    DELicioOUS! my and husband made this recipe together. and hes usually not big on vegetables. but he loved it. and of course i loved it.. tasted alot like a dish that chili's used to serve...
    i think ours was just as good.

  • 2 Dec, 2008

    Loved it! Then, added 2 Tblsp. of chopped green onions, more fresh Ginger, a bit of cilantro and used Low carb/high fiber tortillos with with a can of rinsed fat free pinto beans for left overs and was terrific! Great recipe~Debby from Texas

    Chicken Stir -Fry wraps are a five star reciipe. I suggest serving this to family and best friends.

  • 27 Oct, 2008

    Whole family loved this recipe. Put chicken mixture on top or rice instead of using the lettuce cups.

  • 1 Oct, 2008

    I would also very much appreciate the issue the recipes come from - I keep them and would rather look in them than print - thanks - love the magazine

  • 28 Sep, 2008

    Thanks ladies for the comments about Mushrooms

  • 6 Sep, 2008

    this looks like a great recipe and I'll try it but I do agree with ladies below I need the nutritional information for diabetics.. Also, can you please put what issue these recipes come out of since I have most from the beginning. That way I wouldn't have to print it out I could go to the specific magazine that I have already.. Thanks, Faith

    I agree with Lavenderdiva - include the nutritional information but also the diabetic information. Thanks !!!

    I think this is a great Weight Watchers meal. Soy sauce, vinegar, peppers, onions, lettuce and garlic have 0 points, and 2 oz. of chicken breast shredded is only 2 points. One teaspoon of olive oil is 1 point. So just count the amount of chicken and oil you use and that's your total point count.

  • 28 Jun, 2008

    Please include the nutritional information with each recipe. Many of us are monitoring our intake, and need the counts that should be included with each recipe. If we don't have the magazine copy, yet are here at your website, and want to make a recipe, we need the nutritional information to guide us.

  • 21 Jun, 2008

    I've made this recipe a few times and absolutely love it! I like to add more ginger and red pepper flakes for a little extra kick. It is a perfect light and filling meal. We have made leftovers into fajitas.

  • 20 Jun, 2008

    The nutrition information is given in the magazine.

  • 10 Jun, 2008

    It would be greatly appreciated that any web site that offers lighter versions of something would also include a Nutrition content list. I like to adapt recipes for Weight Watchers points, and knowing the calorie count, fiber and fat content with the recipe will determine whether I try a dish or not. Please think about this. It's not just your site, but all others claiming to be reduced calorie and/or healthy smart.

  • 6 Jun, 2008

    Great recipe - tastes amazing. My husband is not as enthused about lettuce cups so serving it over rice is equally delicious. My girlfriends loved the recipe for one of our girls nights.

  • 10 Apr, 2008

    Fantastic flavors! We upped the red-pepper flakes a bit for some extra kick. A little messy to eat but easy, fun and healthy! Would probably make for a great app or buffet style dinner with guests.

  • 10 Apr, 2008

    Resp. to weniamrdy: If I were you, I'd cook the chicken before wrapping in the won ton. I've not made a chicken egg roll, but the pork and veggie recipes I've used always called for precooked filling. I think the deep frying more warms it through and crisps the wrapper than actually cooking the filling. Hope this helps!

  • 9 Apr, 2008

    I make this a lot! This dish is not only healthy and delicious but fun and different. My family loves it. Sometimes I add a few big handfuls of ready made cabbage mix at the end for added fiber and crunch. Double this recipe because it will be gone in minutes!

  • 11 Mar, 2008

    This meal was great! I liked how the red pepper flakes gave it a little kick but not too spicy and the ginger made it somewhat sweet. All the flavor combinations worked well together and it was quick to make especially for a weeknight meal.
    I served it with rice to my husband and kids and for myself I used the lettuce leaves. I would definitely make again.

  • 25 Jan, 2008

    I want to try this but I was thinking of using a won ton wrap and frying in wok/oil l would make a super stir fried/ Chicken eggroll. Only thiing is how long to cook to ensure chicken is cooked thru....especially since I've never made a egg roll in my life! Help

  • 21 Jan, 2008

    I also added mushrooms. I served it with rice in place of the lettuce.

  • 20 Jan, 2008

    I loved this! Super easy to make and alter to taste. I like to add mushrooms. I also use Sriracha as a condiment b/c I like it spicy. Delicious and lighter.

  • 29 Nov, 2007

    Great, healthy dinner - we make this pretty often!
